How To Reduce Uric Acid Levels And High Cholesterol?
,, my age is 22 years ago you check your cholesterol 226 and uric acid 8.3. Do you want to only need to improve my diet to recover or help with medication consumption too?
Good evening, thanks for the question
An increase in uric acid levels in the blood or hyperuricemia is caused by two factors, namely the high production of uric acid levels in the body or a decrease in uric acid excretion in the kidneys. Uric acid in the blood is high if it exceeds the 7 mg / dl level, as in this case.
In some patients the increase in uric acid in the blood is asymptomatic or asymptomatic. If so, treatment with drugs in asymptomatic patients is actually not recommended. Although patients with high uric acid are at risk of developing kidney stones and attacks of arthritis, drugs to reduce uric acid levels in asymptomatic patients will not only increase medical costs, but can also potentially cause side effects.
The best advice is to change your diet and lifestyle to reduce excessive uric acid intake. Avoid excessive consumption of high purine foods such as meat, jerohan, crabs, shellfish, beans, and cheese. Besides sweet drinks are also at risk in patients with high gout. Increase consumption of fruits, such as oranges, melons, apples, and green vegetables, carrots, tomatoes. Adequate fluid intake to prevent formation of crystals in joints.
Similarly, the increase in total cholesterol levels that you experience today. At these levels it can still be advisable to make lifestyle changes before starting definitive therapy with drugs.
Recommended lifestyle recommendations include:
- Exercise cardio regularly every day for at least 30 minutes
- High fiber consumption
- Limit consumption of saturated fats such as dairy products, red meat, cheese, etc.
- Consumption of healthy fats such as olive oil, avocados, and nuts
- Quit smoking
In addition, also do routine control at least every 2 months to assess the response. At a young age, a good response after lifestyle modification is very likely to occur so that drugs do not need to be given early.
That's all, hope you can help
